We have been teaching E. and she said she would be baptized when God tells her. She is slowly realizing the feelings she feels as she reads the Book of Mormon. If she continues she will know for herself that they are coming from God. We watched the Restoration Movie with her and it was cool. That movie is always a testimony strengthener. She loves her family so I think we will be talking about temples this week. It will be cool.
We also have found this guy named G. He is like 40 something but had a stroke. He can't really walk too well at all (so he can't run away from us Mormons haha!! Just kidding) He is an awesome man!! He is understanding everything sooo well and the most crazy thing that has happened is that we gave him The Book of Mormon last week and now he is in Ether! In a whole week he has almost finished the Book of Mormon. He came to church with us yesterday and it was cool to have him there.
We had a lesson with a really cool guy but he just could not believe we do work for the dead and he started to laugh. We helped him realize how its real doctrine. We shared with him scriptures about Jesus teaching the spirits after his crucifixion. We showed him the scripture about baptism for the dead en Cornitios. The man believed that spirits couldn't think or talk or learn, so then we showed him the story about how on The Mount of Transfiguration Moses and Elijah appeared and talked with Christ and a few of the Apostles. Moses and Elijah had been dead for years and were spirits but could still talk and think. For that reason the Gospel is still preached to the spirits so they may still have a chance to exercise their agency and accept Gods plan not only here in this life but also the next. He really liked this plan that God has. He is a really good guy he just has read so much garbage on the Internet about the Church. The internet can destroy your faith if you aren't careful. 5 years ago in this ward 1 family left the church and told 4 other families what they read and they all left too. It's honestly really sad. This is all soo true!!
OK - well love you all and Go Cowboys!
